Thermal Inspection at SPP Sites

Solar power plants (SPP) have an important role in energy production today. Technology is constantly evolving to increase the efficiency of solar power plants and reduce maintenance costs.

Thermal Investigations in Solar Power Plants with Drone

Drones (unmanned aerial vehicles) are an excellent tool for thermal inspections of solar power plants. Here are the basic steps on how to conduct thermal surveys of solar power plants with drones:

Flight Planning: First, it is necessary to plan the drone flight. The SPP site is mapped and the flight route is determined. With MapperX’s flight instructions, drone thermal inspections are carried out in solar power plants.

Thermal Cameras: Drones can be equipped with thermal cameras. The cameras help detect potential problems by measuring the temperature differences of solar panels.

Flight Execution: The drone flies over the designated route and captures thermal images over the solar power plants. These images show the temperature distribution of the solar panels.

PV Inspection with Drone

Photovoltaic (PV) panels play a fundamental role in solar power generation. Drones are used to inspect the efficiency and robustness of these panels. Here are the advantages of drone PV inspection:

Speed and Precision: Thermographic inspections with drones are much faster than traditional inspection methods and also offer high precision.

Access Challenges: Some PV panels can be found in difficult access conditions. Drones can easily access such areas and solar power plants located in large areas.

Data Analysis after Thermal Inspection

Thermal images collected by the drone are processed by MapperX software for data analysis. This analysis can include the following:

Temperature Distribution Analysis: The temperature distribution of the solar panels at the SPP site is analyzed. Abnormal temperature increases or decreases can help identify problems.

Problem Detection: Thermal images are used to detect damage and problems in solar panels. This allows maintenance teams to respond quickly.

Data Reporting: Analysis results are reported with MapperX software and presented to maintenance teams. These reports help plan repairs and optimize energy production.

Thermal inspection at SPP sites has become more effective and efficient with the use of drone technology. Energy producers get a better position to reduce costs and increase sustainable energy production.

Thermal Inspection of SPP Sites with MapperX

MapperX is an artificial intelligence software used for thermal inspection at SPP sites. MapperX works with thermal drones with high-resolution thermal cameras. By analyzing the data obtained by thermal drones, MapperX detects and reports faults occurring in PV panels.

The benefits of thermal inspection at SPP sites with MapperX are as follows:

Early fault detection: By detecting anomalies in solar panels early, MapperX helps prevent situations that can lead to major damage and losses.

Lower cost: MapperX is faster and more efficient than traditional thermal inspection methods.

Drone Thermographic Inspection is important to improve the efficiency and performance of solar power plants. MapperX can be used in conjunction with thermal drones, enabling large SPP sites to be inspected quickly and efficiently.
